Vale Restaurant, St Fagans National History Museum
Vale Restaurant, St Fagans National History Museum

At the National History Museum at St Fagans, we pride ourselves in providing good, quality food which is cooked on site using local, Welsh products whenever possible.

As part of the preparations for the Museum’s Redevelopment project, the Vale Restaurant is now closed. However, a new food outlet, Yr Odyn, has recently been opened. It is situated on the previous pottery site, where hot and cold food is served.

Gwalia Tea Rooms is a traditional 1930's tea room serving light lunches and afternoon teas.

High-chairs are available at the above outlets.

There is also a picnic area just inside the open-air section, and the Museum’s bakery also sells delicious bread and snacks
